The print comes out with black printing black and red stripes.


I ran a full clean and maintenance on mine and it worked fine for another month but then it started smudging and putting lines over he paper again. I ended up throwing it and buying a new printer as the Guy at the shop said its worn out. After 4 years of heavy duty printing, it wasnt a bad run.

Brother MFC-6490CW not printing properly. Need a deep clean code please?


Hold down the menu key. While still holding the menu key, unplug the machine and plug it back in. Do not let go of the key until the machine reboots and the screen says "maintenence". Hit the following keys: 7, 6, 4,black start. The machine will then go into "power purge" or deep clean mode for about 5-7 minutes. When complete hit: 99 to get out of maintanence and reboot. Be sure to have extra ink cartidges on hand as it does use up a lot of ink but this process works the best every time when the printer wont print.

I have replaced my old catridges on my lexmark x1270 how do i clean the heads as printing is coming out blurr


This link here may help.

A mis-alignment will also cause blurring of the text.
Most ink jet printers have a selection on the menu to clean and align.

Good luck!
Hope this helps.

Blue color appears pinkinsh/now stripes and smudging


Are you using third party ink? make sure your ink is xerox OEM. This will clogg up the inkjets and ruin the print head for ever, If you have always used the third party ink then you might want to get a new print head. . If you have used xerox ink then It sounds like the magenta reservoir has spilled over the cyan. This is caused by moving the printer and not waiting for the cool down procedure. Also you might want to change the print head wiper. If the print head wiper is over used it won't clean the print head properly and what that causes is for ink to build up and causes smudge. also make sure the drum maintance kit is still in good shape. (its the yellow roller on the right side of the printer. Well hopefully this helps .

Printer smudging caused by self-sealing envelope glue on drum


Drums are not hot, you can try to clean them, are they smudgy? More likely the glue came off when it hit the hot section check this area, be carefull not to scratch anything.

Backlit print problem on Mimaki JV33


Hello Mimaki Backlit person,
I had a similar problem with an HP flatbed printer on backlit material. I corrected it (mostly) by lowering the print head to the sheet. Yeah, sounds crazy, and you might have to use a profile which uses less ink, but not only did it clean up the white areas, it sharpened the color edges. Even more important to have clean material and machinery, of course.
I would think that lowering the head would cause blurring and smears, but no. Also, the material I was using had been changed by our supplier, which explained why it worked great before and not now. Suppliers frequently swap items for cheaper material, even replacing one option with their cheaper choice, telling me "OH, it's the same thing."
Yeah, right. Good Luck!

Black ink smudges for color print mode only, not for grayscale


- Try to reallign the cartridge, run a print test, after that if the issue still persist - uninstall and reinstall software - run test and re-allign again the cardtridge using software. run print test again.

Streaks / Bands of broken print area


First with a clean soft cloth and a very small amt of alcohol clean off the underside of the printer carridge (the holder for the print heads) also where the print heads cleaning station is clean out any large masses of congealed link. Then remove the ink cartridge in question and with a pencil eraser gently rub the contacts and both the cartridge and the carridge replace the cartridge. Using the software tools for the printer clean and align the printheads ( if there is an option to do so). If this dosn't fix the problem try a different ink cartridge.
